Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.
We are pleased to announce that BMC Rheumatology has been accepted for indexing in Clarivate's Emerging Sources Citation Index™ (ESCI). Journal content will be available to view in Web of Science's indexing database shortly. A list of all sources where .BMC Rheumatology is indexed can be found here, which includes PubMed Central and Scopus.
